Children’s Hospital Colorado has been recognized by the College of Healthcare Information Management Executives (CHIME) as a 2020 Digital Health Most Wired organization, qualifying for the Performance Excellence Award.
Award recognizes healthcare applications of technology
The CHIME Digital Health Most Wired program conducts an annual survey to assess how effectively healthcare organizations apply core and advanced technologies into their clinical and business programs to improve health and care in their communities. The surveys assessed the adoption, integration and impact of technologies in healthcare organizations at all stages of development, from early development to industry-leading. Children’s Colorado earned a prestigious certified level 9 for overall performance, with level 10 being the highest certification level.
Technology is more critical than ever for delivering care to patients
Now more than ever, technology is critical to delivering the best care possible to our patients. We have been able to expand care delivery and engage our patients and families outside the walls of Children’s Colorado, directly in their homes. Our IT professionals are at the foundation of how we provide care. From our electronic health record, telemedicine, laboratory, radiology, and many of our advanced procedural capabilities, information technology is at the core.
Technology, combined with doctors’ expertise leads to best patient experience
“We are thrilled to be recognized as Most Wired Level 9 for both acute and ambulatory. This shows Children’s Hospital Colorado’s commitment to leverage advanced technology in order to continue to provide exceptional patient care and experiences,” said Dana Moore, senior vice president and chief information officer for Children’s Colorado.
More than 30,000 organizations were represented from 14 different countries in the 2020 Digital Health Most Wired program. Children’s Colorado was recognized for this achievement in Becker’s Health IT.
